Voted Best Vacation Rental by all in attendance!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say....I was looking for a big, beautiful home and property that would accommodate older adults, young adults and children. I wanted waterfront, pool, and privacy. Impossible to find? You bet! Did I find everything I was asking for at the Amazing Grace Lodge? You bet and more!!

Beautiful home on the river with an AMAZING view. Although it's on a busy part of the river, the no wake zone is the trick. Shallow banks, clear water for playing, and fishing. The dock is nice with a VIEW that will lower you blood pressure. Across the water is your Old Florida woods, nice clear waterway from both sides. We did all of our gathering outside when the weather permitted. When the bugs got bad at night you have a huge screened porch/ pool with lots of seating area. The heated pool was a game changer this time of the year. The kitchen is huge and not only seated an entire group of 12, but opened into a huge livingroom with a gorgeous VIEW! I could go on and on...Laura and Tom were wonderful, gracious hosts! No issues with checking in or out and readily accessible for your questions or needs! Their home/property/town has the Old Florida feel that you rarely find these days.Forget the theme parks, hustle and bustle and bring your family & friends! Everywhere you look you are reminded of God's blessings and you give thanks for having the perfect house in which to make everlasting memories!

Perfect location and perfect home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have had a better stay than this. Home was ideal for our family get together. Had a wonderful Easter dinner with a big group. Location on the river was perfect with many manatee sightings along with other wildlife. Home was amazing! We all want to do it again!

Amazing Grace Lodge is the best place we have ever rented.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have brought big groups and stayed in the lodge..

The open lay out of the kitchen, dining area and living area lends itself to socializing, IF you can get people to leave the kitchen/dining area. We had 14 in the house for our first visit, 12 this time. With 3 and 1/2 baths there was never a wait for showers. We never even used the den, wet bar and second dining area. This place has a LOT of space.

Then there is the yard, dock and river. The list of critters we saw would take too long to list but if you are a birder or even not, bring your binoculars. The location is very private once the gate closes behind you.

But you are about 3 min from Homosassa Springs park and another 3 mins gets you to Publix and 10 mins to about any shopping you could want. Within an hour you can be at the beach or any number of rivers or activities for the kids. The location is really great.

If you want a delicous seafood meal without a lot of work or the crowds and hassle of seating a large group, run down the road less than 10 minutes to the Freezer and grab some steamed shrimp or other fresh seafood and have it at the house with a salad and grilled veggies. Can't be beat.

Did we love our stay? You bet, We are coming back in December!!!!!

Wildlife haven

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location. Tons of wildlife to view; birds, manatees, and dolphins. Dolphins fishing right off the dock! Home was comfy and clean! Had some minor maintenance issues and the owners Tom and Laura took care of it right away. They are great people!! Kayaking and canoeing a plus! My entire family had such a superior time. Recommend fixing window treatments in the master closet, and offering more blankets. It was a bit chilly during our stay and we could have used some heavier blankets! Overall, we loved it!!

This is the best VRBO property we have ever stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week after Christmas until the New Year. Brought in the New Year standing on the dock. We did have an ever changing group with from 6 to 13 in the house each night. Everyone loved it. The favorite thing for everyone was the view from the great room. It would never get old.

We all loved the secluded feeling once the gate closed and we started down the long winding drive.

The house is has 3 bedrooms in the main house. Master with a King bed, guest room with a standard bed and another guest room with two singles. The pool house apartment has a sitting room and two separate sleeping rooms. Each room is set up to sleep 4 comfortably. the number of single beds was a really big draw for us. Our group usually has more singles than couples and it is hard to find a house with enough single beds. This was ideal for our group.

The kitchen is very well equipped but I always take a few of my favorites pans, etc. no matter where I go.

From the dock in the back yard we saw Manatees, fish galore, blue herons, ibis, cormorants, anhingas, storks, bald eagles, egrets, osprey and the list goes on and on. I could have spent the entire week without every leaving the property.

There is no such thing as a perfect house, things go wrong. How problems are handled can make or break the vacations. We had problems with the WIFI. Texted the owner, he was there within 30 minutes and stayed on the phone with tech support until he solved the problem. The water heater is a combination solar and electric system. Pretty complicated. We had problems getting hot water when we checked in, again, the owner was right there with apologies and got the problem squared away. Tom and Laura were amazing at how fast they responded to any request or question we had. I would give our host and hostess a 5 star rating for sure. Higher if the site allowed it.

We already have this house reserved for another trip in February. It has become one of our favorite locations. One of the guest call me the day after we got back home and asked if we were doing this again next Christmas, he wanted to put in for vacation time immediately!!!!

I feel truly blessed to have found Tom and Laura and Amazing Grace.
